Calling All Planner Freaks!
I am a self-professed planner freak and I am constantly on the search for the elusive "perfect planner." Enter J.Lynn Designery. When I found J.Lynn Designery late-night Instagram browsing, I emailed the owner, Jenna Murillo, immediately. Not only is this a local company, her products are truly AMAZING. I felt like I had found my planner soulmate after searching for so long. Jenna and I first met for coffee at Broadway Café and ended up chatting for 2 hours. She is a joy to be around and her passion for her work is evident. Although company is best known for the Refresh Weekly Planner, Jenna has been adding to her inventory ever since the launch in 2015. My personal favorite is the notepad she gifted me (see below) that features my new life mantra "Kansas City you're my favorite."
If you are like me and can't imagine your life without a paper planner, you know how expensive these can run. Jenna keeps her planners at a great price point ($39.95). The products are high-end without breaking the bank. Fun fact - when Jenna started the company, she was binding each planner herself. That is just one small example of how dedicated she is to the craftsmanship and excellence of the product.
I highly recommend following J.Lynn Designery on Instagram for glimpse into Jenna's aesthetic which can be seen throughout the product line. Her taste for simple elegance is clear in her beautifully composed photos. She even finds a way to make her precious guinea pigs look elegant!

One of my most favorite things about her product line is the "Perfectly Imperfect" Refresh Planners. These planners are sold at a lower price because they have minor blemishes on the cover. To me, this idea is the epitome of Jenna Murillo - she has an innate ability to always see the best in everything. These perfectly imperfect planners are seriously calling my name for 2017 and I would love to give one of them a happy life in my home.
From the goal planning pages to the beautiful package that arrives on your doorstep, J.Lynn Designery sees the beauty in the details. Jenna takes care to package each order in black-and-white striped tissue paper, making it feel like you are opening the most beautiful present.
Each one of the products are very high quality, filled with witty and inspirational phrases, and best of all, they are designed locally in Kansas City. To a stationary freak, I have found my match. And to a Kansas City freak, I am thrilled to have such great talent here at our fingertips.
